Folk" is a social dance club which meets at The Church Hall, Marlborough Road, St Albans, AL1
3XG, UK, on most Friday evenings from 7:45 - 10:00 pm. If you've ever
been to a barn dance or a ceilidh, you'll know the sort of thing we do.
We dance for our own enjoyment - sometimes to live music, sometimes to
What's OnOur Programme. The current Friday Folk programme is here.
Friday Folk is Forty. This year Friday Folk celebrates its 40th anniversary. We are holding two special events on 18 and 19 October 2019 to mark the occasion - a Friday Anniversary Club Night and a Saturday dance. Both will include dancing and refreshments. We extend a special invitation for all former members of the club to come and join us for these events.
Give us a try!New members are always welcome, especially beginners. There's no need to book. Just turn up - on your own or with a partner - and enjoy yourself. We have a caller to explain the dances, so you can join in straight away. After each dance, people normally change partners. There is usually a good balance between men and women. See a slideshow of our activities here.
Most Friday sessions cost just £4 on the night. Special events are sometimes more as noted in the programme. There is easy parking in nearby streets and car parks. Map here.
